Artwork Title: Olympia - Artist Name: Édouard Manet
In an overview about nudity, Edouard Manet cannot be neglected. His painting Olympia shocked the audience at the salon, in depicting a naked prostitute who received flowers (probably from one of her customers). Although Manet didn’t dare to depict pubic hair, he made a reference to it by painting the black, hairy cat at the feet of the woman. (http://19thcenturyrealism.com/nude/)
